People have taken to the streets in Syria’s northwestern city of Idlib to protest against the al-Nusra Front terrorist group that has been fighting the Syrian government
The demonstrators, who were mainly youth, took part in the march on Friday to call on the al-Qaeda-linked militant group to leave the region immediately.
The protesters also called for the release of several activists detained by the terrorists.
The rally came one day after Syria’s ambassador to the United Nations accused the West and certain regional countries of supporting terrorist groups operating in the Arab country.
In an address to the UN Security Council on February 26, Bashar Ja’afari further warned that the humanitarian situation in Syria will worsen.
Syria has been grappling with a deadly crisis since March 2011. The al-Nusrah Front, along with the ISIL Takfiri terrorists, has committed numerous atrocities in the Middle Eastern country over the past couple of years.
The violence, fueled by Takfiri groups, has so far claimed the lives of over 210,000 people, latest reports show.
Over 3.8 million Syrians have left their country since the beginning of the crisis. More than 7.2 million Syrians have also become internally displaced, according to the UN.
The US and its regional allies, including Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar, have supported the terrorist groups operating against the government of President Bashar al-Assad in Syria.
